Opening Up Throng

Once again yesterday, comments were made that you’d like to see more voices on Throng and that I should open the site up for anyone to write posts for people to comment on. This year I have made numerous offers for exactly this. Both Roger and K regularly post items on Throng and everyone appreciates their input when they do. I, like you, would love to see more of this.

I am not opposed to Throng having more voices. If you’d like to contribute, I am happy to set you up an account so that you can. I am happy for this to be done under either your own name or anonymously if you’re one of the many people who are readers who work in the industry or for one of the broadcasters.

    Why no mention of Mark Wasley and Tanya, who also post stuff?

    • Regan Cunliffe

      Obviously I can’t do anything right…

      • Dave

        Exactly. Negativity doesn’t make for a productive website or community 🙂

        Thanks “Guest”; Regan, I don’t think they meant that to come across as being rude (well, I didn’t read it that way) – but then they forgot to mention the Shortland Street recap lady too (love her recaps!) 🙂

        I made a comment on that post that contained the suggestions that the site be opened up, about how it would be good to have someone who sees programmes in advance, give us a few hints as to what’s going to happen in that night’s shows. But in the absence of that, I enjoyed the “What to watch tonight” posts you used to do, and would love to see them come back 🙂

        i will try to post some stuff from time to time – I haven’t in absolute ages.

          I’ve finally managed to sign into my Disqus account so I can reply to comments again. Thank you for your kind words Tania, it means a lot to know that at least one person out there appreciates the nightly effort.

  • Mark Wasley

    I’d love to move up the rankings…. I have been a member for several years (I’ve lost count!)

    • Mark Wasley

      Pretty please…. of course 🙂

      • ?

        what do you mean rankings?

        • Mark Wasley

          My posts automatically going to the Home Page.

          • Tania

            Talk to Regan about your settings, because when I posted recaps mine automatically went to the home page … maybe there’s a box you have to tick or something?

          • Mark Wasley

            I figured out how to post this to the home page:
            http://www.throng.co.nz/2014/08/benny-tipene-releases-fourth-single/

            There wasn’t any tick box, so I hope this OK @regancunliffe:disqus ….

    I like the variety of articles on the site, birthdays included, and like reading the comments. I remember people commenting a while back that they liked all the new stuff, so i think you should remember that and ignore the haters whose only contributions are comments dissing the site. You have made the offer for people to contribute; have any of those people taken you up on the offer? Bet not. Haters gonna hate.
